Of the 16 samples in which discrepant
results based on the serial dilution criterion corresponded to a change in clinical interpretation, 2 of the 4 cortisol samples, 2 of the 3 PSA samples, and all 9 of the [beta]hCG samples had measurements within the reference interval for the 1:1 dilution but were outside the reference interval for at least one of the higher dilutions.
This study was initiated after samples from three patients with unexpectedly low calcium values from the Roche method on the Hitachi 747 showed discrepant
results when measured by a different method (Dade Dimension RxL; Table 2).
Because we were unable to identify a common clinical denominator in the high-hsTnT group or the high-cTnI group, we suspect that autoantibodies directed against cardiac troponins contributed to the severely discrepant
cTnI and hsTnT measurements in our patients, but we cannot prove this hypothesis owing to the retrospective study design.
Persons, MD; Raat such cases could give rise to discrepant
results between immunohistochemistry and FISH assays for HER2.
What should the physicians do about the discrepant

The tree acts as a linchpin for the discrepant
perspectives without reconciling them.
invoices and pricing errors generate a massive amount of paperwork resulting in hours of rework and a significant impact to the bottom line.
results were defined as those that were either >7 IU/L on Immulite and <4 IU/L on Roche assay, or <4 IU/L on Immulite and > 7 IU/L on Roche assay; this definition was used in order not to classify as discrepant
closely similar results that happened to lie on either side of the cutoff point.
Access to the actual spot as aired will minimize administrative costs and wasted cycles both parties incur when trying to chase down a possibly discrepant
